First is the question on everyone’s minds: what’s the deal with Nolan Arenado? There are several different factors that must be considered, including cost, his age, and what he actually wants. Another fan asks about how the Rockies handle their finances. They’ve definitely been spending more, which might hint toward some regrowth plans. There’s also a question about Jon Gray and what he can bring to the Rockies. Jeff Bridich seems to have faith in the roller coaster that is Gray. We also wonder how long we’ll get to hang onto Bud Black. He’s certainly brought good vibes into the dugout Evan Longoria Jersey , and it seems that the Rockies are open to keeping him around. Saunders also addresses the catcher situation, and whether or not the Rockies are too conservative in their offseason approach.Colorado Rockies: Nolan Arenado and the contracts for the 2020 season | Rox PileThe upcoming season is the final one the Rockies will have control over Nolan Arenado’s contract. With the Rockies holding back on moves in the offseason, we could speculate that they’re saving their money to try to make a bid for him after the season ends. Offering him the kind of deal that players like Bryce Harper might get would mean the Rockies dedicate a significant portion of their payroll towards Arenado. With the other salaries the Rockies already have, this would take up the majority of their payroll. What it comes down to is that the Rockies are going to have to be willing to shell out to hang onto their star third baseman. It sure stinks to be a free agent second baseman in 2019 | SBNation It’s been a slow offseason, even for some big names. Jed Lowrie is a phenomenal player who is just too expensive for many teams. Another powerhouse second baseman is DJ LeMahieu, and he’s also having trouble finding a team. He might not even be able to start second base next year. Asdrubal Cabrera, Logan Forsythe Dustin McGowan Jersey , Wilmer Flores, and Neil Walker are also struggling to get any kind of second base deal. It’s a slow offseason for everyone, and we’ll have to wait and see if any team with an open spot will be willing to shell out for a second baseman.And in Albuquerque Isotopes news...

Well I bet you didn’t think Yasiel Puig would be wearing red either, did you?Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Puig, Alex Wood and Matt Kemp will be coming over to Cincinnati in exchange for Homer Bailey, Homer Bailey’s contract Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey , and additional prospects. Rosecrans has added that at least one more player will be coming from the 2018 NL Champions.My mind tells me that I should be as excited about this deal as the prospects warrant, and that none of Wood, Puig nor Kemp is under contract for 2020.My heart tells me that Puig is fun as hell, Wood is already the best starter the Reds have, and Kemp is a strapping dude and the best right-handed outfielder on the roster. The Reds may not be in full compete mode, but they just got much more watchable.
